    I think the switch is going to go the way of the Dreamcast. But the successor of the 3ds will still have a chance. They should be aware though that mobile gaming is a threat.

    You reap what you sow. Nintendo used to make game developers only make games on their console, then they made you pay them to show their games on youtube. Now guess what, even if people aren't put off by what Nintendo has done in the past, Nintendo's past decisions have made an impact on the way Nintendo thinks; and Nintendo will continue to make future poor decisions because of Nintendo's mentality. Mario will be to Nintendo as Sonic is to Sega.

    3DS is better than Wii U. 3DS looks more hardcore while the Wii U looks like something for little kids to play on. The Wii U is too underpowered with its specs to compete with Xbox One and PS4. Nintendo hasn't upgraded the specs on their home consoles since Wii. Pretty much it's Nintendo's fault for making the Wii U miserable.

    With the rest I agree with you but the 3ds thing I dont agree with you because the 3ds has much of good and decend games for core gameres and true nintendo fans and not for kids games with good gameplay, multiplayer, competive and good story.

    I really don't think it would be essential for Nintendo to release the console as 4K capable as the majority of households have not invested in 4K TV's. However if Nintendo release a machine that will struggle to run 1080p games and can barely compete techwise with Sony and Xbox then this could really be the final nail in the coffin for Nintendo being a force console wise. Lets hope they don't go the same way as Sega

    Things are going to smartphones?  Nah… the AppStore gold rush has been over for years.  The big wigs and big tech are in it, now that they're done underestimating their prominence, and now it's even more of a jungle than ever.  Rather than compete with all the stuff out there, it seems they'd be better off sticking to traditional video games.  Or "more traditional"?  At least not leaving it completely.

    And does Nintendo having equal or greater specs than the PS and Xbox of it time really mean much?  Keeping the hardware cheaper has saved them $$.  It is a bit of concern how they're still lacking in 3rd party, but I don't know if there's enough room for a 3-way, 3rd party brawl.

    Speaking of which, where the heck are the PS and Xbox going to go?  Even more crystal clear sound, and duper anti-aliasing?  This last paragraph is rather serious in where this video doesn't know where Ninty's going, but I don't know where Sony nor M$, nor any of the video games are going to go from here for that matter

    I may be wrong, but I bet the wii u is going to follow the same path as the gamecube: extremely overlooked, but as years pass we are going to realize what a fun console it was.

    I didn't even know what a wii u was until someone told me about it and I found out that it had been out about 4 months since its launch and I didn't even know what is was, Nintendo really poorly marketed this product half of my friends don't even know what a Wii u is, if you are going to launch a new gaming console you have to reach your target market Nintendo hasn't done that they believed that their name would sell their console but it may of worked for them in the past but their is little chance that it will work for the now and that is part of the reason why the wii u is selling so poorly because people don't know what it is

    When the Zelda franchise comes to PC or another console, I will then stop buying Nintendo products. But I don't see that happening any time soon.

    Because of the release of big games, more people will buy the Wii U.. I guess? 😛 I'm trying to buy the Wii U when school ends for me in 25th of June (June 25th) of this year so that I can enjoy my Summer when it will come. 🙂

    I think Nintendo should just retire their home console making business and just stick with their handheld systems and make whatever they plan to make after the 3DS, since 3DS has sold more games than the Wii U at this point and they obviously didn't want the Wii U to succeed, considering that they have been focusing on making games for 3DS more than the Wii U. I'm sure if the Wii U had the same hardware specs that matched either the PS4 or the Xbone and let 3rd party developers make games for their system, like GTA5, Destiny, Just Cause 3, Kingdom Hearts 3 and etc, i'm sure things would of been different and better. the Wii U can't even play DVDs or blu-ray movies, much less music cds for christ sake and yet they charge $300 for the Wii U?…. what the hell were they thinking?! Nintendo is doing so bad, that they lost Mega Man 1 – 6 to PS4!

    This whole mess could have easily and ultimately been avoided if Nintendo had:

    1. Ditched cartridges for the N64 and used discs. Why? Why the fuck do they have to be so fucking stodgy and stay in the Dark Ages? CDs were the future when the N64 came out. Sticking to cartridges in an era of disc-based media was self-retardation. Then they wouldn't have alienated Square and other developers who jumped ship to Sony because of Nintendo's retarded model. In this scenario, the Wii U would probably do better by now.

    Or:

    2. Nintendo embraced the 3DO and stopped making consoles altogether. Just bow out gracefully with the Super Nintendo and make games for the 3DO and whatever its successor would have been instead. They wouldn't have needed a hardware division anymore. They would just have to worry about programming games. The notion of having a Wii U for some games, an Xbox One for others, and a PS4 for others is bullshit. Look at the home video market–they only have one format at a time. Why can't video games? What do people think is going to happen? The home video market doesn't tolerate multiple formats (e.g., the format wars between Betamax and VHS and Blu-ray vs. HD-DVD); how and why does the video game industry put up with it? Why can't we have just ONE console that plays every game? No more console wars, no more hardware divisions, no more having to adjust multiplats for consoles that are hard to program for, no more bullshit!

    I'm fairly certain the popularity of the 3ds, and in fact every one of nintendo's handhelds, are due mainly and solely to them having Zelda games on them. I wouldn't be surprised if anywhere from 30-60% of all their units sold are solely from hardcore zelda fans who just can't not play one of the games.

    You people are so fucking delusional that paint the WiiU as this HUGE GIGANTIC FAILURE WORST THING EVER COMPANY IS DEAD EVERYONE INVOLVED IN MAKING IT SHOULD BE SHOT.

    A. Ratios of 1.4 to 1 and 2.4 to 1 of units sold are NOT an indication of a HUGE FUCKING FAILURE, those ratios are BARELY WITHIN THE MARGIN OF SIGNIFICANCE when considering the randomness factor of things like moms buying shit for their spoiled kids or other ignorant, essentially randomly chosen purchases. They certainly indicate they are indeed not selling as well as their competition, but to paint 25%+ market share (essentially in a market of 3) as a "GIGANTIC FAILURE" is fucking delusional.

    B. 10 Million units sold is still a HUGE FUCKING NUMBER. If you think 10 million units sold is a "failure", you just… I dont… I dont even… fuck……. Does your company sell 10 million units of something? Where are all your youtube videos with 10 million views?

    C. I understand they have negative revenue due to the console but that doesn't mean it's some sort of death sentence for the company. Nintendo has had plenty of bombastic failures before and they've always gotten through just fine
